DrumCraft Drum Clinic featuring Scott Pellegrom, October 24th, 2011- Scott has absorbed decades-old drumset traditions: he plays with bare hands, sticks, and various striking implements and travereses the entire drum head for sweet spots. What other drummers talk about is the way Scott's cool grooves make use of sounds, airy and earthy, that others haven't explored. Part of the facination is playful use of cymbals, wherin he causes them to wash and exclaim as part of the musical flow. www.scottpellegrom.com
